As you all know for a while now I've been so upset about what is happening between my daughter Emma and Dan. Things were just crazy with them. The arguing the fighting, all the secrets they were keeping from one another. All I could do about it was sit by and watch the happy home my grandchildren once had fall apart. But there was one thing I could do and no one would know about it, and thats pray. I've never ever been very religious. When I was 9yrs old my mother got very sick with cancer and I prayed to god to make her better. It never happened, she died here in Philadelphia, alone, because her husband was at home with their 6 children. Then my favorite aunt, my Aunt Lucy got sick, she had breast cancer, I prayed for her to get better, did'nt happen. She died 6 months after my mother died. After that I truely believed there was no god, because if there was he would'nt of let my mommy or my aunt die. Many many years went by and I did'nt believe. I was 40yrs old when I finally started to believe there was a god again. So, for the past few weeks everynight before I closed my eyes to go to sleep, I prayed to god for a miracle. I wanted him to make Emma and Dan see what they have, being a nice home, and beautiful children, and love they both had for each other. I wanted them to wake up and realize how much their hurting each other and the children too. Well, god heard my prayers everynight, I believe that! Cause the miracle I asked him for happened. They both realized it finally, that what they have is more precious then anything. Thursday night Emma and Dan sat down and had a long talk. Everything was told, discussed, forgiven. They talked about their health also. With Dan having the problem with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, clogged artery, and Emma having the growth on her ovary. They wanted to make sure each other would be taken care of if anything were to happen. They wanted the kids to have a happy home, with parents who love them and love each other.
And they were both miserable worrying about what one another was doing or going to do. They made alot of tension and stress in their home, and I know the kids picked up on that, because even they were cranky, alot more then usual. I would'nt even go over their place, cause it was so painful to see how everyone was hurt. I got mad at my daughter, left her a mean message on her voice mail, which I later felt so bad about doing. But anyways, back to the miracle I asked god for.
God heard my prayers to him!!!!!!! Because yesterday morning I walked to my daughters. When I arrived Emma seemed so strange. She then came right out and said Mom, can you keep a secret? Yes, Emma if you want me to keep a secret, I will as long as no one gets hurt. Then she told me about the talk she and Dan had, told me she now knows she loves him and he loves her, that they were both miserable until last night. I said ok fine, so what are you's doing about it?
See this cake? I have to make one on sunday. Because this monday night at 7:pm at a small chapel in Medford, New Jersey my daughter and Dan will be exchanging their vows and announcing their love for each other to god. I am so, so happy. When she told me I cried. And I mean I cried. I grabbed my daughter and I hugged her and cried some more. But it was a good cry, because they were happy tears. I wanted this for so long. They were gonna elope and not tell anyone, but thank you Pastor Mike for talking them out of it. We are just gonna have cake and coffee afterwards, but we're planning a big wedding bash in a couple months.
All I can say now is thank you god for hearing me, for giving Dan and Emma the wisdom to realize they truely should be together. And for showing me that you really do exist. Miracles can come true!!!!!!!!!!! I believe that now.
